It's unlikely that someone who has a high post count will not have much to offer. You're shouldn't be competing with other users on the quality of helpfulness of posts, people should be smart enough to figure out themselves if something is funny, helpful or useful, etc. Sorry, it's dumb.


    Agreed. I am positive it's important to some people, but why? Are we on here to "gain points", or all be friendly mountain bikers? Yes. Perhaps I'm new to THIS forum and community that does not mean I am a "newb" to forums or the internet. If you want reps, I think reddit would be a better place ;)

    Agree ,heres some of the saddest ones in the passion forum which i rarely go to cause its getting too pathetic..

    The most pathetic ones are as follows

    Pictures of the fall
    pictures of the snow
    pictures and my kids
    pictures and my grandkids
    passion for my birthday
    passion for being healthy
    im losing my passion
    im gaining my passion back
    my friend is losing his passion
    passion for my wife
    passion for my girlfriend
    passion for long rides
    passion for short rides
    its too hot
    its too cold
    Passion for my cat

    Cant we have a 'unicorn milkers and rainbow chasers forum' that all this crap can go in, then all the muppets can come together into one forum and they can be weeded out from the rest of the place?

    Actually, id scrap the passion forum altogether, im passionate about that.......

    Agreed. I would be fine with the existence of the rep system if one could totally opt of it. I don't read any rep given to me and I have not given any either.

    Speaking of ads, I don't like how this guy is giving me the roadie stare whenever I navigate to this site.

    All the peeps in the Norcal forum who post in the Norcal forum threads that could/should be in the General, Passion, or other places, like they are their own little mtb/interweb universe. Unless the topic is regionally oriented, why should it be in a regional forum? Just because mountain biking was invented in Norcal....sheesh.

    Im sick of people whinging and whining about the rep system, there only green dots n numbers, if you dont like it ,forget about it, dont say its meaningless because it obviously isnt if its given you so much butthurt and you pay attention to it so much.

    When I first joined MTBR, product reviews were awesome I learned so much from them. Now reviews are impossible to navigate, stuff is listed without product details like msrp or weights. And what happened to editors choice?
    If the product reviews was improved I think much of the annoying, "which bike kick stand is better" questions in the forums would go away.

    BREAKING NEWS, for all of you that hate rep, the new system is here as we speak, all anonymous rep is gone, go to your rep pages and check them out, this will make plenty of people happy, i think its a great idea.

    I agree. They make using an iPad extremely frustrating. Just when you think the page is fully loaded and go to tap a link the entire page rescales because some ad just loaded and you end up tapping an entirely different link and have to start the whole process over. I know we need adds to pay the bills, but is there any way to integrate them without all the excessive shifting and rescaling?

    CHUM was mumbling something about a "Dudes of MTBR" calendar while out on a ride one night. Something about beer hiding sensitive areas. Not sure he was in his right mind (is he ever), it may have been the hill...

    I can only imagine how it is on a tablet, i typically don't use MTBR on mine.

    To be more precise, normally ads load pretty quickly so it is ok, but sometimes when there is a delay fetching a particular ad or ad-image, there seems to be a rule in the page loading process that defines that before content can be loaded, ads must be displayed. So there is this order-of-loading process that gives priority to ads, and I really dont like that.
